We went to visit the Orkney Chocolate Company, which is based in Shapinsay. It was great!
In school we have been doing some work in ILT - we even made chocolate playdough!

This term we are learning about things made in Orkney. It is important to try local produce and today we tasted fudge!
We had to guess what the flavours were and then vote for our favourites. Then we did some block graphs and P3 went on to do a pie chart on the computer as well.

We made our own toys from bruck - we had to make a plan and then evaluate them afterwards. What do you think?

Everyone had ILT together today - look at all the things we did!
We made a hotel - this is the restaurant.
Some of us played in the sand.
Some of us made models
Some of us went outside to make a hotwheels outside track (this got quite muddy but we all had to work together to manage it)

We have been learning about forces with Miss Ross. Push and pull are forces - you move objects by pushing or pulling them. You can't see forces but you can see their effect.
First we went to the playpark to explore how we make things move by pushing or pulling them.
We then became scientists and tried to find out what happened when we pushed air with different things (fans, straws and bottles).
We found out that we could push more air with some things than others and that made the object move further. Which do you think pushed more air - the straw, fan or bottle?

We are really lucky because lots of people have given us toys to use while we learn about toys. We are really enjoying playing with them!
We have a new tent in the classroom too and it's been fun using it as a cosy reading corner.
